"Check out my take on a metal looking finish. This was done using Driftwood Milk Paint, Argentine Pearl Effects, Pitch Black Glaze, High Performance Topcoat and Antique Oak stain all by General Finishes.

The handles were brightened using silver Run N buff. To finish off I sealed with High Performance Top Coat, and this lovely Lady was...

Foil adhesive applied randomly on edges, legs and designs so that the silver leaf looks like it is peeling off. Amazing!!!!

Reblessed, LLC says "Pearl Effects are such a sophisticated way to add a metallic look to any item. We've used ours on furniture, lamps, picture frames, furniture trim, artwork, decor, and more. They can be applied as a solid metallic for a more bold "dipped" look or as a glaze for a more subtle look. We generously applied the Argentine Pearl and the Champagne Pearl over the Driftwood Milk Paint as a glaze. We then decided to add the Van Dyke Brown glaze over it to give the silver tones more...
